Fred Payne Clatworthy
In Estes Park

1875 - 1953

In 1898 while just in his early twenties, FP Clatworthy took a cross-country trip via bicycle.  He passed through Estes Park on his way to California, and returned to settle there.  Clatworthy was a very early color photographer, and was a regular contributor to National Geographic.

He was also involved in the local art scene.  The Trail Newspaper notes an exhibition of C.P. Adams, R.H. Tallant, and Frank Vavra's paintings at Clatworthy's studio on August 29th 1929
